HOOPってこんな奴
 かつてスキンの絵柄が女性だったからといって女性が書いてるとは限らないだろ。これが意外どころか、そのものズバリの脂ぎった中年男だったりするのだ。まあ、気持ちだけはいつまでも14歳くらいだったりするんだけんども、そんなこと言われたって気味悪いだけだろうしな。

 あ、そういえば、ブログホイホイに捕獲されちゃいました。アクセスアップだけじゃなくて、けっこう面白いブログに出会えるから意外と使えるかもね。

ルーズベルト大統領の、ホワイトハウスで見かけた鳥類リスト
b0002954_1373157.jpg


107年前の春、セオドア・ルーズベルト大統領は
ホワイトハウスおよび近郊で見られる野鳥のリストを作っていたのですね。

なぜ、こんなものをみつけたかというと、
最近のニュースにこんなものがあったからです。

At least there's one hawk in the White House! Predator spotted circling Obama's residence
Animal has been seen circling 1600 Pennsylvania Ave over recent weeks
Smaller birds have dive-bombed it, fearing it is perching near to their nests
Correspondents have shared pictures of bird high up on the building
Grounds have been infiltrated by foxes and raccoons in the past

というわけで、ご紹介しましょう。

President Theodore Roosevelt's Bird Checklist for the White House
“Bird-Lore: A Bi-Monthly Magazine Devoted to the Study and Protection of Birds”
Official Organ of the Audubon Societies
(Vol. X11 No. 2 March – April, 1910)
From the author, Lucy W. Maynard of Washington, DC: … I had the opportunity to speak with the President, and I asked him if I might make, from a magazine article of his, a list of the birds he mentioned having seen about the White House. I explained that I wanted it for a new edition of the local bird book, ‘Birds of Washington and Vicinity.’

“Why yes,” he answered cordially. “But I’ll do better for you than that. I’ll make you a list of all the birds I can remember having seen since I have been here.”

Then he said I had better remind him, as he might forget it, and he told me how to address a note so that it would come directly to him, without risk of falling into a secretary’s waste-basket.

I wrote the reminder, and it shows the President’s characteristic promptness that within twenty-four hours after mailing it I received this list of ninety three birds in his own handwriting.
